Curry and its many facets effect each one of us in special ways. Curry has given us all a chance to learn and grow, to strive and achieve. The friendships we make will be lifelong. Most importantly, it is thanks to Curry that we have all been given the opportunity to find ourselves. This opportunity has manifested itself in several different ways: Through social activites and school patriotism; hours in the classroom and carefree summers; from field trips to Cape Cod beaches to the cultural attractions of Boston; and through getting to know each other in the good times and the bad. GINGER represents liveliness and animation, everyone knows that's easy to find at Curry. From the everyday antics in the cafeteria, to the often lively study sessions in the library. There's always a hot game of hacky sack, frisbee, or lacrosse on the quad. And then there are the weekends. There's no livelier time at Curry than a party in the cafe, a game on the field, and a night at the pub. LAVENDER — well, it's close to purple. Patriotism at Curry College can be no better represented than by the school colors. Whether it's purple and gold, purple and silver, or just purple, the statement it makes is CURRY! SAGE — the reason everyone goes to college, the never-ending search for profound wisdom. No one will ever forget their days in Issues of Modern Civilization, Science 101, Human Values, Fine Arts, Psychology, and Gym . . . Gym? The many specialized majors at Curry allow each in- dividual the chance to pursue his/ her own interest. Together, these two aspects of Curry have prepared us for productive careers and lives. SUMMER SAVORY, oh, those savored days of summer. The excitement and anticipation before each summer recess was overwhelming. The cars were packed when they left campus, each student thinking of summer j«5|l^ips*W^ sun, summer fun, and summer jobs! While each summer was a great experience, each student was secretly ready to return to school by early August. SEASALT, what better to represent the many Curry road- trips. From Ft. Lauderdale in March, to Bermuda and the Bahamas, to everyone's Great Cape Escapes, the seashore is an integral part of Curry life. Who could possibly return to campus after Spring Break without a tan? What would a sunny spring Saturday be without a trip to Houghton's Pond? Yes, everyone at Curry does their share of building castles in the sand. BAY LEAF, well, it shares its name with the Bay State, that's close enough. Boston and its cultural attractions have provided an enrichment all their own. We cheered on the Celtics at Boston Garden; a trip to Fenway was always fun (not for the Red Sox but for "Who's On First"); we saw shows at the Shubert; spent our money at Fanueil Hall; the Museum of Fine Arts enlightened us; we saw Rocky Horror at Ex- eter Street; and yes, some people even figured out the MBTA! SUGAR and spice and every- thing nice — sound cliche? No, not necessarily. It is here that all the goodness of Curry comes together, the special "close" quality that's characteristic to the Curry Community, alias, the ' 'Curry Family . " At no other in- stitution is this feeling so pre- dominant, Curry's charm is all its own. THYME to study, time for class, time to eat, time to sleep, time to party . . . party, of course just on weekends Mom & Dad! There are countless memorable times we've had at Curry. There have been good times and bad times, but always a friend to share them with. Then, of course, there is the Currier- Times, the bi-weekly chronicle of goings on at Curry. As each person passes through Curry, their reflections will undoubtedly yield "time well spent!" luiJttifiiMli ,i \ \jg :^ii Ba A §BS¥ m^ ::.'::. %t A 1 III!! ^4 Ill 1 \ L 4 nillill llllllll IIHiH| ED n 1 ^1 1 CI ! 1 j 1 \.'

Acadeynics Academics iSSil Academic Program, it's 100% I have been at Curry for three years and during this time I have noticed many changes occur, mainly in the academic programs. Being involved in various committees on campus I have been able to notice and take part in many of these changes that have gone on in this area. Although like another student, I have had feelings of discourage- ment and disappointment about my academics at Curry, I made it a point to never give up on my potential in both academic and extra curricular areas, or in the college itself, and the people who have supported me. I came to Curry because I liked the academic programs the campus and the people. I told myself when I came here that 1 was going to make it work for me (this determination was an im- portant part of my success). 1 wanted to put in 100 percent and therefore I expected 100 percent in return. What I like most about the academic programs here is the progress they have made. They are better, more sophisticated, and much more effective than when I first entered. There is be- coming a better variety of courses and a great deal of expansion is being made in such areas as management and computer science. Any person can notice through these changes how aware Curry is becoming of societies emphasis on technology and progress and how the school is implementing the emphasis into its academic programs. As a student, this progress gives me great confidence in myself; my abilities and my education and its effectiveness. This focus on progress is making Curry better academically and is attracting a good student body and an in- telligent group of faculty. I believe students in the years to come will be a more motivated group of people and highly in- telligent as a result of the very sophisticated education which they will receive. I now sense a growing interest by students con- cerning their education and fu- ture. Students will be very lucky to attend Curry because of its academic progress and focus. I have one year left at Curry and although I am looking forward to having a career and graduating (they don't necessari- ly come in that order!) I am find- ing that my courses every semester get more interesting and thus my life as a student at Curry becomes more pleasing. This realization came very late to me but once it did everything came together, everything I had done here at Curry made sense. I final- ly understood how both the college and I had achieved our goals: they, to teach me manage- ment and I to help them to teach me by putting in 100 percent to my academics. I would hope that every student here at Curry would ex- plore his or her own academic and political potential. Help others to help themselves (and yourself) and make the faculty and institution work for yourself, and them, by contributing 100 percent. If students do these things they will find that, like myself, they will receive 100 percent in return. And, all of this, is what I believe college, educa- tion, and growth is all about: one must contribute 100 percent if one is expecting 100 percent in return.

If I should fail to learn this junk, I pray the Lord I will not flunk. But if I do, don't pity me at all, Just lay my bones down in the study hall. Tell my teacher I did my best. And lay my books upon my chest. Now I lay me down to rest. And pray I'll pass tomorrow's test. If I should die before I wake. That's one less test I'll have to take. **N^s^^ 95 i y 96 The Year in Review A high school teacher goes into space.

The Space Shuttle Dis- covery met with great success in September, 1985, when its large ro- bot arm was used to re- pair a disabled satellite. Tragically, just four months later the shuttle Challenger exploded just after take off, killing all of its 7 astronauts. One of the killed was Chrlsta McAulliffe, a high school teacher from Concord, UH, who was going to teach the first "Lesson in Space." The accident left the entire nation in shock, and the space pro- gram in jeopaj-dy. ^g|;jX m0 ^ r ^^^^^^^1 •1 1 SI Ff^ 2^ ^^ ^ V \ \ *^^-^^ k '^J^ ..^tt m Mideast Disaster Bombings, gunfire, and terrorism continues in the Mideast.

Superpowers discuss "Nuclear Madness" As the world moved ever- closer to the yeao' 2000, it became apparent that the two superpowers were beginning to bring an end to "Nuclear Madness." President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev met privately in Geneva, in what was at least a step in the right direction. The two men met alone, without their aides, to discuss civil rights, mutual foreign ex- change programs, and nucleai" disarmament. 103 TWA tLiJacked — terrorism continues Sheite hijackers took over a TWA jet in Athens, Greece, threatening to kill all 153 people on board.

Try not to shed any tears, as we hear about o\ir Curry years. Some rock stars who were seen, were Phil CoUins and Bruce Springsteen. Also having their stints, were Michael Jackson and Prince. The women who were in. were Madonna and Whitney Houston. In magazines who did we see, but Pauline and Christie Brinkley. Mel Gibson and Mark Harmon were sexy males, and how 'bout those guys from Chippendale's. With Michael J. Fox the girls wanted to cuddle, and Don Johnson made a style from stubble. TV shows were made to entice, Uke Hill Street and Miami Vice. Family Ties and Cosby were lots of fun, as were KRP and M*A*S*H rer\ms. The Breakfast Club made a kill, and so did Fletch and The Big Chill. Rocky made the R\issians see, and Sly made a break for Mr. T. People started wearing plaids, and starting other 'i fads. Cabbage Patch Kids were made stars, and we went out to buy VCR's. Hunger and famine caused much grief, the movement was for aid and rehef. Across America people held hajids in a row, USA for Africa and Band-Aid let us know. Khadafy led a reign of terror, Libya was bombed for his error. lyienol capsules were laced, the shuttle had trouble in space. American pride began to show through, we tried to save our statue. There was news of aJl sorts, coming from the world of sports. The Pats did their best to hustle, but coiildn't beat the Superbowl ShufQe. The Fridge was known throughout the land, while 108 Jim McMahon wore his heacllDand.. Flutie and Phelan had the miracle pass, while Herschel Walker tore up the grass. The Celtics were so hard to stop, and once again rose to the top. The BniLns took their knocks, and so did the Red Sox. Clemens got 20 to strike out, Spud Webb got the crowd to shout. Pete Rose broke the record for hits, and Gretzky gave goalies fits. BUly Majptin got fired and rehired, Holmes and Sugar Ray retired. Hagler was the king of knockouts, he beat Hearns Ray Bans and Vuarnets helped us see, we yelled "We want our MTV!" We wrestled like Bundy and Hulk, Steve Wright told jokes with a siolk. Break Dancers gained fame. Trivial Pursuit became our game. There were good and bad times, but politics and history made headlines. Fritz and Gerry really tried, but Reagan and B\isch won a landslide. Mrs. Marcos had the blues, Cuz Aqiiino had her shoes. In Mexico there was an earthquake, through terrorism Uves were at stake. The Achille Lauro was hijacked, Apartheid was no longer backed. T ■ li iiiiiiii .'-^ miiiiiiimmmiiiiiiiiii,,,,,||j„53^^ iwsm^^Si Purple Reign — (cont.) and Duran in bouts. America knew just how to score, dominating the Olympics of '84. While Mary Lou Retton energized her name, Carl Lewis and Greg Louganis gained fame. No matter if you were here or there, you coxild see the wave anywhere. Let's now move closer to home, to D. Forbes Will Field and the Millerdome. Throughout our four years, our athletes had no fears. They did their best to train, to create the Purple Reign. In football, Strannie, Jack, and Jamie led the seige, along with Chico, Thermbo, and Rege. Men's Soccer had their best season, Vic and Artie were part of the reason. Women's Soccer also hit the mark, led by Yvonne's hustle and spark. Field Hockey finally got set, with a lot of help from Annette. Men's hoop was led by Big Mo, but we can't forget Pudge and Ribo. Meta led the women's five, with leadership and drive. On the ice Tom and Rich made waves, while Timmy Downes made the waves. On the diamond Lenny could be foiind, running out to take the mo\ind. The Softball team was led by Kate, in the field and at the plate. Angus knew all the facts, making saves while playing lax. Wolfle was quite a menace, on the courts playing tennis. train — moving aroiuid and feehng no pain.

On these nights there were no duds, we danced about and drank the suds. Riding aboard the party was cafe food the reason? Watching cafe help could be a sight, "Heather today is Friday, right?" Sitting at the cafe not knowing what to do, "Olympic, may I help you?" Chris led the hackers on loiisy, Life After Death made xis drowsy. J.T. was like a gull on the ledge, but was Ihmnie a sedge? Bubb and Jamie dropped out of sight, Steve G. and Catherine had the height. Class couples were Bonnie and Paul, Kevin and Julie, but that's not all. There was also Tom and Ljmn, Steve and Kathy, "L" and Kim. the quad, cranMng the Dead ajid acting odd. Where they'll lurk, we'll never know, but when you need them, where's Curry 5'0?

Why did Brad's furniture disappear, and does Hogey have a rear? Cleaver wanted a native tan, Dave Carpenter was a crazy man. Liwy could never say four, Melissa kept the score. Tony dressed GQ every day, we partied with Smoothy and Chris Sova. MLIST was run by Kim and Joe, did you hsten to Curry College radio? We took a shower instead of a bath, Joey was the Curry psychopath. Why did they all get so sore, when Buzz put the nails in Bob's door? Gretchen, Cindy and Linda didn't stray far, drinking them down at Neit's baj?. And then there was Senior Week, when we all reached our peak. We pubbed it until three, till we covild no longer see. With the alums and Pres. we did dine, and dancing at Celebrations was just fine. They screamed, "99 Bottles of Beer," but "Go to Bed" was the final jeer. It was tough to get booze, while we were on the cruise. Eating at Oceancliffe was just right, there's nothing like a Newport night. On Saturday we pubbed it again, staying out till who know's when. Then a sunny May 18 was the date, it was time for us to graduate. I hope that I have maintained, my goal of keeping you entertained. While sharing o\ir laughs and fears, about our college yeaxs.

Then, sophomore run- ning back Kevin Gingras also went down to a shoulder injury a few games later. After an opening game loss to Westfield State here at Curry, 33- 20, where we lost two key start- ers, the Purple Reign stormed back with a tough-fought 14-12 victory over Massachusetts Mari- time in Buzzards Bay. We then returned home to play Framing- ham State on Parent's Weekend iii the most amazing come-from- behind victory in Colonel athletic history. Trailing 28-0 at half- time, we got mad and scored 35 unanswered points to win the game 35-28, going away. I know I will never personally forget that game. When we lost the heart-break- er to Marine Maritime, 20-19, in Castine, and then lost again the next week at home againist a Bridgewater State Team that we should have destroyed, we were probably the best 2-3 team in the New England Football Confer- ence. Injuries and bad breaks were just not helping us out. Pride is what kept us fighting. Never did we quit. We beat Western New En- gland College, 17-0, in a great offensive and defensive effort. However, I believe our best game of the season occurred on Home- coming against Western Con- necticut State. We lost that game, 35-3 1 , but the level of skill and courage displayed by both teams on this day was unparalleled. Western Connecticut was the decided favorite, but we gave them quite a game. I'll never forget Coach Doherty's sadness after the game, lamenting that someone had to lose a game so well-played as that one was. We bounced back the next week to destroy arch-rival Nichols College, 34-6, at home. We had an even record at 4-4 going into our last game against league-leading Plymouth State. Although we lost that last game to Plymouth State and ended up with a four win, five loss record, we were winners as a team. We knew we were going to have a rough season from the beginning due to our tough, but young defense and the early season injuries to some key offensive and defensive starters. But, we never gave up fighting week after week. Our high- powered offense triggered by junior quarterback Bob Barrett kept us in many games. I'll never forget what I have learned about life from Coach Doherty, who never quit on us, and from my teammates, all of whom I love so much. — Mark T.

Coach Jim Kaufman later referred to this team as the ' ' Record Breakers , ' ' due to the number of records that were broken. Such records in- cluded: most shutouts in a season, most goals scored in a season, most wins and fewest goals allowed. Better conditioning and a win- ning attitude were the two main differences between this team and teams in the past. The Colonels were led by senior co- captains Victor Manganiello and Artie Tefft. Other influential members of the team were leading scorers Kevin Smith, junior, and Mike Driscoll, a sophomore. Also having outstanding seasons were junior goalkeeper, Steve Driscoll , who posted a record of 9- 1 - 1 , junior fullback Matt Clancy, senior fullback Brad Pittman, and sophomore sweeperback Jon Levine. Due to a successful recruiting year, the Colonels were helped immensely by an outstanding crop of freshmen, such as Mike LeBrun, Jon Zane, Jason Salama, Joel Skumil and Kevin Discroll. The Colonels are losing just three players to graduation, so 1986 could be another record breaking season. Maybe once again, the men's soccer team will hear that echoing saying from Coach Kaufman, "We're win- ning ballgames." 130 131 Field Hockey 132 Ice Hockey Champions 134 Basketball Champions rem 137 w B a 111 s e k n e s t b a 1 1 H /'A ml- ^^^^^^Hr ^^^H Mens Baseball 140 141 142 Intramurals ON 3 BASKETBALL . .

Somehow through the uncertainty, or maybe because of it, Wishing on a Star became the song of the girls who filled the second floor of Mayflower Hall. Since then, our constellation of friends has redefined itself somewhat — a few have broken away, while others have become a part of us; bringing a new dimension and strengthening the whole. During the last four years we've come to rely on each other for laughter and support: always able to draw strength from our core. And because of these bonds, we've helped each other discover our separate and unique identities. So with the good-byes our graduation now brings, the analogy of the star has come full circle. As we each are drawn to those dreams and aspirations we hold ourselves, our strength and energy still radiates from our center — our center of friends . . . ^^BSmmww'win^ ^^^B^^'^ I ^^^^^^^^^1 ^^^^^^^H ^^^^BB^^j(. Freshman Class This year has brought many new and exciting challenges and ex- periences to us as Curry College freshmen. Upon entering Curry in the fall we all felt the nervousness of going to college for the first time. We felt that excitement of living on our own, making new friends, and taking-on vigorous new course schedules. As the year moved along we all settled into our new lifestyles and began pulling together as one large unit. This year's freshman class has been very active and involved in the Curry College community. Led by class president Geno Cenci and his cabinet, consisting of Maureen Casey, Traci Masterson, Traci Rich, Faith True, Eddie Ross, Scott Goldberg, and Edward Fitzpatrick, we all worked together to come up with successful, energetic ideas to raise money for our class. Some of our projects this year included selling flowers at the homecoming football game, holding a Christmas dance in December, along with selling "Secret Santa" messages which the students found different and enjoyable. We sponsored a few cafeteria dances along with the "Mary Wong Comedy Festival" which proved to be one of the most delightful functions of the entire year. The idea of having dorm pictures taken and distributed to the students proved to be another original and successful idea. The Freshman class also sponsored the final senior party, providing the class of 1986 with a memorable salute and farewell, along with a sincere wish of luck as they venture toward the future with dignity and confidence. Our freshman year has proven to be a very exciting and un- forgettable experience. We have contributed a great deal to the Curry College community in our short first year of attendance. As we strive to make the most of our opportunities throughout our years at Curry College we will continue to contribute wholeheartedly to the commu- nity. We will face many changes and take-on numerous responsibil- ities, remaining devoted to the betterment of Curry College as we embark on the long and laborious journey toward our own bright and successful futures. — Faith True — Sophomore Class To retell the trials and joys of each sopho- more cannot be done here in such a small space. The task itself would be enormous. Even more a monumental task is the summa- tion of what each of us has learned this year, academically as well as socially. It would be easy enough, however to bring insight to our class as a whole; to what we've accomplished as a body of individuals. As Freshmen, our class introduced to Curry what seemed to be a windfall of su- perior athletes. That year, starting lineups all across the athletic rosters were dominated by us. As each new Freshman Class enters, we'll get older, better, and may further contribute to Curry's athletic excellence by being ourselves and setting examples for them to follow. As students, we have been aware of our potentials and our shortcomings. We have not been indifferent to our futures. We have been successful for the most part. After all, we are still here, though some have moved on. As a class, we have been victorious. No class was able to match our wit and strategy during Colonel Pride Week — we won, that event, and we'll win it again. Parent's Weekend, sponsored by us, was similarly successful. By the time we graduate, our Snack Bar will have made us the wealthiest graduating class ever. Our real wealth is invested in our class itself. As time grows, the class grows stronger, smarter, more superior, and richer. These are the only directions in which we, as the Class of 1988, can turn. We'll maintain this investment and make it pay off. John Harrington Sophomore Class President 165 Successful Junior Class Throughout This past academic year, the Junior class has soared the new heights we as officers, never imagined would occur. With a lot of dedication and hard work, the class pulled together to raise almost two thousand dollars, where we began with nothing. The year began with the planning and organizing of a successful Homecoming Dance held in Fanual Hall, an enjoyable evening was had by all. October brought an evening of costumes and laughs in the pub on Halloween night. The juniors offered bags of treats known as Halloween- A-Grams to celebrate the holiday . Even though the months of November and December were quiet for the Class of '87, the minds of the representatives and officers were busily planning an action packed spring. Winter carnival weekend began with an ex- cellent evening of live entertainment and socializing. The popular band performed for our community. Saturday began early with ice skating and an evening of relaxation at the Curry Club. Sunday's movie festival featured a variety of movies. Valentines Day proved to be very interest- ing for the junior class. The popular performers. The Drive entertained a Valen- tine's Celebration. The Dating game did however cap the evening. Susan Shipira and Stuart Strother offered their services in choos- ing a date. The candidates, Linda Whitlow, Julia Abrams, Candi Poll, Geno Cenci, Tim Flarrety and all were contestants. Tim, Sue, Candi, and Stu were treated to dinner at J.C. Hillaries and free movie passes. March brought several activities that showed class spirit as well as dedication. The annual Alumni Phoneathon was held in which the Junior class officers raised, taking first place, winning $250.00, all proceeds were raised for new facilities on the athletic field. Colonel Pride Week sponsored by SGA was an excellent opportunity for 1987 class members to pull together. And that they did! Taking second place and $150.00, we all showed class spirit in rare form. Con- gratulations and thank you to all those who participated. Spring weekend consisted of an excellent day of festivities. Greg Greenway, Mike McDonald, and Pousett Dart performed in a superb out door concert. A barbecue and so- cial gathering took place following the con- cert.

I guess the reason for this was the fact that I as a person do not give up and, I guess, that is why we go through our college years. We want to find the right place for our lives to begin. We all need a firm place to show our feelings through the things we do and that is why I had to change the program board. I found that there had to be more communication to places like SGA, the classes, and to Curry as a whole. I know that there is alot more to be done but with the help of SGA and the classes, the program board will grow and be something to be proud of. The year as it stands now was alot more than restful. From classes to events and a new student activities director, I had my hands full. I am glad that Cheryl Deutsch was there when I needed help, support and a shoulder to cry on. She was my right hand and more. Words cannot express what she has done for me and the college! Cheryl, my hat is taken off for you. As things go I also need to say one big thank you for the help and support of Sammy and Coop. Although I do not know what I would have done without them, Sammy Rosenberg and Marc Coopersmith helped out without being asked or told to help in my goals that I wanted to do. They deserve more than a thank you and alot more than I can say but remember guys, don't let it go to your heads! The last three people that I feel I need to thank is Lois Wallace for her happy good mornings and her help with unmessing up situations that I feel would not have happened otherwise. I also need to thank Nick Krach for his help even when he did not want to and showing me the right way to get things I needed, and last but not least, Cathy Garrick for her help as well in all the things I came up with for her to do. To put it all together without their help would have been im- possible. Curry's program board is getting there but it cannot be done alone. You need to care if you want an event to happen on campus. We are all in this together and this is what Curry is all about, "togetherness." Curry can only be what you make of it and nothing more. Don't forget what you can do when you put your all into it! Best of luck to the class of 86. V.P. David L. Kurtz 189 SGA There is no doubt in my mind that the Student Government Association this year has been an extremely progressive one. The association has grown and blossomed into an organization that truly works for the entire student body. However, the organization has gone through changes since September of 85 . The first major change was the resignation of Michael Arujio. This occurrence allowed me, Ann Money, the former vice president, to step into the presidential seat, (the first woman president!) The first action I took as president was to put together an executive board since it was incomplete. Gena Balsamo became the vice president, whom previously acted as the treasurer. David Kurtz remained the vice president of the program board. Linwood McDaniel was appointed treasurer. Julie Abrams was appointed recording secretary and Herb Kunius acted as recording secretary. I could honestly say that the SGA helped me in a very hard time. With no planning, I had to take upon myself a time consuming as well as a difficult job. I knew I would be able to tackle this if I had their support. In a special meeting for this purpose they gave me that support I needed. Now it was time to get down to business. With seventeen strong representatives, four from each class and a commuter representa- tive, and sixteen hard working officers, there was no question that the SGA- 1985- 1986 would be an action filled year. The first task would be to put together the forum. The forum was held on November 22, 1985. The entire SGA worked together to make it a success and because of their dedica- tion and hard work, it was just that, a success. The forum brought about several important issues and from these issues we based our goals. The association previously had committees in which each member had to be a part of. The problem with this was that several of these committees had nothing to accomplish during part of the year. For this reason, motivation was lost which led to a point where the committees did not meet at all. The new strategy was to create adhoc committees when a situation occurred. In doing this, the members volunteered more readily because they were interested and it made them motivated naturally. There were still a couple of remaining standing committees because they met weekly and are needed throughout the entire school year. Integrated also into the procedures this year was the SGA person of the month. Each month an advisor nominated three individuals from SGA who has done outstanding work. Whether it be for the class or for a commuter. The SGA then voted for one of these three in- dividuals, giving reasons why this person should be awarded. Outstanding persons of the month have been: Mark Daly, Herb Kunius, Linwood McDaniel and Kim DeCaro. Colonel Pride Week was another added attraction to the SGA. Colonel pride week was a week during the month of April geared to promote overall spirit on Curry's campus. Each class competed for the title of "the most spirited class." There was a scheduled event for each day such as a day when everyone wore the school colors, a shoe day, a hat day, a colonel dinner and a party to close the weeks activities. The sophomores won a money award and the title, ' 'the most spirited class. ' ' John Harrington won for the most spirited in- dividual during colonel pride week. The SGA meetings themselves have gone through various changes. Attendance records were outstanding. The gallery was always full. Students who did not have a title also came to watch what was going on. Members spoke out when they were confused or when they wanted to be heard. The formality was still there but members were more at ease which in all respects is a plus. For the first time, issues were discussed fully to lead to the groups best decisions. One meeting was held in the president's dining room to release severe formality in the SGA conference room. During this meeting the group became a form of the choral club when we sang a song together to advertise colonel pride week. To the advisors of the SGA — Sam Webb, John Boddy, Karen Kaslauskas and Cheryl Deutsch, I am extremely grateful. They are extremely hard working people, guiding us to achieve our goals, leading us into the right directions and gearing us back to reality when we drifted off our targets. I wish I had more space to mention accom- plishments and activities the SGA was in- volved in this year but I would be most likely encouraging you to turn the page. But I would like to thank the class presidents. Marc Coopersmith, Jefferson Atkins, John Har- rington and Geno Cence. I would also like to thank Gena Balsomo who has worked tremendously behind the scenes since day one and who has not been appreciated half as 190 much as she should have been. AH in all the SGA is made up of very spe- cial, dedicated, hard working people. It makes me proud to work with such fine, unique individuals. It is my hope that next year the SGA will continue to be the strongest student group on campus, blossoming even more to reach it's goals in the positive ways that it has. The students of Curry College are quite remarkable and I know it will always be SGA forever. Seniors — may the years ahead be those of love, joy and success.

Alan Frank To the Graduating Class of 1986, I say congratulations on the successful comple- tion of your college education. One of the fun things about working in a school is watching the students grow and mature. I play a little game with myself as I look over the incoming freshmen. I wonder who will emerge as the leaders. Which will become my special buddies. Who will leave. Sometimes I'm right, more often I am astonishingly wrong. Whatever category the freshman fall in it is fun to see them blossom as butterflies from a chrysalis. You have witnessed that education changes people as you yourselves have grown and changed. The friends you have made at Curry will be your friends for the rest of your life. Keep in touch with them. Take time to make that call, write that letter, send that card. Let Alumni know your whereabouts — so that where ever Fate takes you, you will always have that tie, that home base. You are leaving a nurturing, caring environment. Because of the good care and education you have received, your roots are deep and sturdy. You will always be my "kids." Hove you all. Don't forget Mother Curry.

Winston-Salem, NC 27113 Liaison: Dick Swiech YEARBOOK DEDICATION "Dedication" as a noun and "dedicated" as an adjec- tive are two very different things. In its noun form it means an inscription attached to a book, a place of recognition — in its active form, it is the conscious way in which we whole-heartedly approach a task. Dedicated is truly a word we can use to describe Dean Hastings, and this dedication is how we wish to honor that. The Dean joined the English faculty at Curry in 1 964 — the year many of us were bom . During his tenure at Curry , Dean Hastings has been involved in everything from directing the Curry College Concert Choir, to teaching English to ultimately assuming the duties of Dean. Since 1971 he has also served as the organist and choirmaster at the First Parish Church in Milton. Although adhering to his duties as top academic administrator at Curry, teaching has continued to be his first love — lucky for us. Dean Hastings, with his legiti- mate desire to teach us in the classroom, and his sincere dedication as Dean, has made Curry a better place for all of us. Always there for the students. Dean Hastings has our best interests in mind: From explaining things that we don't understand; to taking extra time to help us with our problems. It is with great pride and admiration that the Curry College Yearbook Staff and the Class of 1986 dedicate "The Spice of Life" to Dean Ned Hastings — Adminis- trator, Teacher, Musician, and Friend.
